Good Screen capture software? Not Mirillis Action since it's garbage apparently. - Page 3

post #21 of 37
Thread Starter 
Thanks zemco! I'm not sure if I mentioned as this is an older thread but I have since got mirillis action to work and it's my go to screen cap... I might check out afterburner as I hear good things, and shadowplay is going soon also.

I downloaded OBS and played around with it, but as much as i'd like to get into live streaming I have not done so yet.

Live streaming is VERY easy once you know how to set up OBS. I did not see the thread date tongue.gif I tend to.... skip the reading unless I REALLY want to see what it is about, but I already know the software I use. I don't need to try more xD

I know this thread has been dead for two months, but since no one seems to be having my issue and you guys seem familiar (at least somewhat) maybe you can help.

As far as I can tell, Mirillis has potential when it works... But it won't even run for me. I click on the shortcut, it starts up, then immediately my screen starts flashing repeatedly until my entire login crashes and I land back at the login screen. I was able to read the message that was popping up, and it is telling me that desktop recording is disable because I am not using Aero (since I'm on windows 8.) This message pops up endlessly along with my screen flashing until it all crashes. I wouldn't think that it is a program conflict since I only have origin, steam, and catalyst control center running at the same time. I could also understand no desktop recording, but I don't get why it won't even open properly. Quite a bit of a pain. I wouldn't think it would be THAT incompatible with Windows 8.

I use action on Windows 8....and Windows 8 does use aero...have you checked the event viewer?

I use Action! for a long time, it is the best recorder out of all the softwares I use including open software. The software is not useless just because you don't have the codec to work with. Those files I can import into Adobe Premiere Pro like magic and output it to H.264 MP4 or AVI.

Don't tell me i'm welcome. I never thanked you and have no intention of. You weren't helpful.

I know how recording software works and having used the program I obviously know that Action has a video player. I also know that its player would only play my video and not my sound. I know that VLC gave me some obscure error that seemingly only 1 other person encountered and his post on the mirillis forums didn't get a solution. I also know VLC has never give me a problem with a video before. I also know the video played fine in Sony Vegas worked for sound and video for some reason. So 1 out of 3 players worked, and it's own player didn't even. There's nothing "nonsense" about any of that. Those are facts that make perfect sense.

I shouldn't have to watch my videos on just Sony Vegas. VLC should work, and the programs integrated player should work.

U dont have to use Sony Vegas to watch Action recordings. There is windows media player, Divx video, ( windows 8 ) video and much more. I dont find VLC to be that important in support but theres one thing u must look at. IF VLC is a media player why dosnt it support this video format. I would consider this a VLC problem and not a Action problem.

Not sure how many of you will read this, but there is one major issue with Mirillis Action that you might not even be aware of.

Regardless of where you select your video to be saved, Action! will write the data to your Windows temp folder as well as the location you specify in the settings.
If you have an SSD and use Mirillis a lot, you'll be shortening the life of your SSD a LOT!

There is no way to change this in Action!, so the best option is to move your temp folder to a secondary HDD (if you have one).

I do that anyway. Have ever since I started using SSDs. Just kind of made sense...so there's people that DON'T do this?
